first time in my haunted new town
unscrewed the cloud from my back and let the thing float 'round
I watched your avatar talk and report from some flat future
of course we used to do it too but that was before I knew it
we once gathered in the great carparks of our time
thinking if the smart ones manage the savages
things should all work out fine

did your second life kick while we were at the sink?
'cause while the radio played I was feeling nearly nothing

a room of babies astral-travelling
next to ones of adults tracking them
in the heart of a good machine
runs a search for unused memory
seeing everything all at once
like the villagers should have done
shook a fist at the unbuilt plain
‘yeah I will come for you again'

was it ever going to be this hard?
you can say it now without love
the time we met before we met
you were going to be the one.
